Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

Express 8-cyl

Since the 2002 Chevrolet 1/2 ton custom van was purchased it has given me brake problems. First was the rotors which was settled in court, General Motors customer satisfaction program! the brakes have failed about 4 times, 3 times with me and once with my son. The steering also goes hard. The van was taken to the Chevrolet dealership to be repaired. They claimed nothing was wrong and to take it back. My husband pointed out the NHTSA Office Of Defects Investigation 05V005000 but they could care less and claimed they lack the skill to work on brake problems.
